450g/1lb Minced Pork
450g/1lb Minced Beef (not too lean)
75g/3oz stale White Breadcrumbs

1 teasp Onion Powder (optional)

1. Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and using your hands, mix very well, squidging the mixture together.

2. Line a 1.3kg/3lb loaf tin with clingfilm making sure there’s plenty of clingfilm overlapping the edges, then transfer the mixture to the lined tin, pressing it down very firmly.

3. Cover the top with the over-hanging clingfilm then transfer to the refrigerator and chill for 8 hours. Alternatively, if you want to use the mixture sooner, you can place it in the freezer for 30-60 minutes to firm up.

4. When ready to use, turn the meat out of the tin onto a flat surface and cut into slices about 12mm/˝-inch thick.

5. Heat in a little fat or oil in a frying pan and fry the slices on both sides until brown and cooked through. Serve hot.

Traditionally served as part of the great Scottish breakfast.
